For a tutorial on how to install the drivers, click here.
A while back a friend of mine gave me an old smart card reader that was of no use to him; he had no need to use smart cards at home and the reader he gave me, a Schlumberger Reflex USB reader, had no support in 64-bit Windows 7, or so it seemed.
I cracked open the reader (didn’t take any effort, there are no screws nor snap-clips holding the case together) and found the internal part number: an SCM Microsystems SCR301 reader. Forcing Windows to use the SCM Microsystems SCR300 driver was successful in getting the reader to show up in Windows, meaning that I had a free, usable smart card reader to tinker around with. Awesome.
Update on June 20, 2013: Added a screenshot of the reader in Device Manager.
thanks for this
would you happen to know where to find that SCR300 driver? been trying and having no luck finding it! thanks
I’ve just created a new post that shows where the drivers are located, and how to install them. Windows should have these drivers already on your computer; no download should be needed.
So, I have a box with about 45 off these things brand new. Lol
No idea what they are for or what to do with them. I don’t want to put them for sale online if I can’t tell people what they do.
